Description

Quinta Do Vale Meao Vintage Port 2018

The Quinta do Vale Meao Vintage Port, a deeply coloured wine, with a powerful attack, full of intensity where one easily can find fresh fruity notes. It is very well structured that will age beautifully. The grapes pass through a quality control before being crushed, in order to avoid mainly raisins, and in some varieties possible Botrytis problems. After being crushed, the grapes are cooled down and periodically trodden by foot in granite "lagares" until the sugar contents of the must reaches the required level. This process lasts in average for three days. The must is then racked to the storage vats and wine brandy is added to stop fermentation.
Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.
